Our research focuses on infectious diseases such as HIV, tuberculosis, influenza, and COVID-19. We currently have 16 active studies. The clinical team is responsible for screening and enrolling subjects, conducting study visits, sample collection and transport, as well as coordination with researchers and lab staff within our facilities.
